Bawumia Visits 82-Year-Old Leper After Building Her A House (Photos)

It has not been much longer that, Ghana’s Second Gentleman, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia warmed the hearts of a majority of Ghanaians after building a house for an 82-year-old cured leper.

The 82-year-old cured leper, Daari Pogo, was forced to live in a dilapidated 5 meters by 6-meter mud hut with her granddaughter Adjara after her abandonment. Joy News covered the sad story and it caught the attention of the Vice President.

In a recent development, the Vice President has paid a visit to the 82-year-old leper on his Upper West regional tour. He made this known via his Facebook post in which he wrote

“Today, on my Upper West regional tour, I visited 82-year-old madam Daari Pogo, a cured leper who had been abandoned by her family at Gurungu motori in the Wa West district.
A few months ago, I was inspired by a Joy News documentary which depicted the sorry plight of Daari Pogo, who was forced to live in a dilapidated 5 meters by 6-meter mud hut with her granddaughter Adjara after her abandonment. As a result, I built for her a two-bedroom self-contained house.
As the Patron of the Lepers Aid Society, today is a happy day in my life and I thank God for what he has done for Madam Pogo.
We must continue to be each other’s keeper.”
